Courtney Love, 58, posted a tribute to her late husband Kurt Cobain on Instagram, marking the 29th anniversary of his death. The image was a black-and-white photo of Cobain’s hands clasped together that was taken by R.E.M. singer Michael Stipe.

Love wrote, “It is one of the only images (or sounds/ tastes etc) that makes me miss him deeply. He chanted with me & often, & truly was moved by our Buddhist practice. Thus, I know he’s in an enlightened place, more so, than we here in mappo are.”

Cobain is known as the lead vocalist for the band Nirvana. The 90s rock group helped popularize the grunge scene in the Pacific Northwest with singles like “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and “Come As You Are.”

Love, the lead singer of Hole, and Cobain married in 1992. Cobain died by suicide on April 5, 1994. The couple shared one child together, daughter Frances Bean.
